reportedly referenced violence but the f.b.i. launched a full investigation. now one of the most decorated military leaders in our history has been removed as the head the c.i.a. essentially he has been silenced days before he was scheduled to testify before congressional investigators. even more concerning, all of this unfolded before the election but we, you, were not told about until president obama was declared victorious. speaking of the white house they are peddling the farfetched story that the president wasn't informed about the petraeus affair until after the election day. >> this investigation has been going on for months. how is it that the white house didn't have any idea of this until the day the election and congress a few days later? >> i would refer you to the f.b.i. they have, as i understand it, protocols in place when they notify the legislative executive branches of the investigations. it is simply a fact that the white house was not aware of the situation regarding general petraeus until wednesdaythe sitl allen, friday. >> sean: so the f.b.i. knew about the investigati

, as we learn the identity of the fbi agent who sparked the investigation that brought down one of the nation's most powerful leaders, and is now implicated another. president obama himself spoke out today for the first time since the scandal broke, and my co-anchor terry moran has the latest. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> reporter: as president obama sauntered into the east room of the white house for his post-victory news conference, the scandal that's engulfed the highest levels of his national security team still swirled around him. tonight, abc news has learned the identity of the fbi agent who ignited the whole staggering chain of events. fredrik humphreys, a 47-year-old fbi veteran who is active in counterterrorism cases, is friends with tampa socialite jill kelley who turned to him when she got some harassing e-mails. meanwhile, in washington, paula broadwell, petraeus' former mistress, who allegedly sent the e-mails to kelley, remained in hiding at her brother's home. today, the fbi said she illegally had classified material at her home

of the secrets of the fbi. fran, a really basic question here. if you just walk up to someone on a staff and say, hey, the general would like me to have classified documents, is that all there is to it? would they likely hand them over on that? >> no, but you have to understand the military culture. i visited petraeus in afghanistan on business and he walks into a briefing, he speaks to you about sensitive military matters, the staff sees that, there's a military culture and so, if you then ask for a document and suggest that the general has offered it to you in some way or sanctioned your having it, it's very difficult for a subordinate military member to either question the general's guest or the general himself about that. and so, it's not really clear, did petraeus actually direct that she could have these documents? did he communicate with his subordinate soldiers and command? we don't know that so it remains unclear about the circumstances. >> so, ron, if it's a staff member who sees this sort of relationship or thinks they see such a relationship and they hand over information, is just th
to know who changed these talking points, and here with more on that, the author of the secrets of the fbi, chief washington correspondent for newsmax.com ronald kessler is back along with the former assistant secretary of defense, bing west is here with us as well. this is very frustrating to me because i feel we've been lied to. here we have this event happen, almost instantaneously petraeus knows what happened. the libyan president told us within a day what had happened. people on the ground told us what had happened. the state department watched in real-time. five days after, susan rice didn't know what happened and two weeks later the president couldn't say definitively it was a terrorist attack. is that plausible? >> shawn, there's no reason to have the argument in a way because every day the president is given a daily brief by the cia, so all one has to do in one of these intelligence committees is say well, let me see the brief that the president received on those days. it's either going to be in there or it's not. the problem when the white house doesn't want to even reveal what w

follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. >> let's jump right in and bring in our friday morning political power panel. we have jackie kucinich political reporter for "usa today", democratic strategist blake zeb and msnbc contributor robert trainum. great to have you all here. we just heard from congressman king earlier today saying the general was asked right off the top whether the affair had an impact on his testimony. he said no. they moved on. but are all indications then that the affair is now a side note and lawmakers are truly focused on what took place in benghazi and the intelligence they have now? >> this very minute, yeah. i think that's the case. will that remain the focus? i don't know. because there's a lot of questions still out there about petraeus and his relationship with his biographer as well as joe kelly in tampa. and general allen. i mean, there are a lot of moving parts here.
at the present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation ongoing and that will give us the definitive word on what transpired. putting together the best information we have today, the current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hoyers before in cairo. a copycat attack which were prompted of course by the video. >> senator, you said that two days before that, director petraeus said it was terrorism. why didn't ambassador rice call it terrorism two days later? >> because she could speak publicly only on unclassified speaking points. i have some concern with those speaking points. but let me correct one thing. >> right. but what are the concerns and why speak at all? in other words, why was there a reference to it being a terrorist attack taken out of the public talking points? >> that is something that we're going to find out. but it was. that's the point. now, with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there is only one thing that was changed, and i've checked into
